On Saturday, November 11, Denver Fashion Weekend (DFW) will feature a night full of national and international designers — a first for the DFW runway. Designers from New York, California, Paris, Milan and even Australia will showcase their designs for one night only.

The night is sponsored by Garbarini — a “runway fresh” Denver boutique that carries designs and collections from all over the world, including the ones showing at DFW. We’ve put together a preview of what to expect from the world-renowned designers you’ll see on Night Two.
